(THE BLAZE) An overwhelming majority of New York City COVID-19 patients who are put on ventilators die, leading doctors to reconsider whether the method of treatment is actually harmful for patients infected with the novel coronavirus, according to the Associated Press.

Why this matters: New York and other states have been desperate to obtain enough ventilators for the number of COVID-19 patients they expect to get. The belief has been that many people could potentially die if they don’t have access to a ventilator.
